Once again, we look forward to our annual picnic, a time to sit, knit, and enjoy all the delicious food prepared by our members. We will also have a yarn swap, books, as well as circular needles and other notions for sale. For the yarn swap please put the items from your stash you no longer want in “ziplock” type of bag with your name. You can either sell your yarn or exchange it for another yarn for sale. This is a great way to reduce your stash of “what was I thinking when I bought that yarn”. The July picnic kicks off the second half of the year we can look forward to more wonderful speakers on tap for fall and winter.
In September, we are planning a new KAL based on one of the stitch patterns from Sequence Knitting by Cecelia Campochiaro. The pattern “Colormill” is available on Ravelry. You can use the stitch pattern to create a scarf, shawl, hat or any other item. Smaller items work well as we get closer to the holiday season. My copy of the book will be available for members to peruse. It is such a wonderful source of inspiration.
See you on the 24th, and, as always,
As always, happy knitting, J. Evelyne Liebmann
